Hyde’s Middle School Faculty Attend Hunts Point Community Tour

“Every year the Middle School division welcomes our returning and new staff members with a tour of our Hunts Point neighborhood. However, this year we wanted to be a bit more purposeful with our tour. We wanted to ensure that our staff really understood the community they are going to be working for [by] not just know[ing] the popular landmarks but [by also understanding] the history of Hunts Point [along with] where the community is moving towards through new surrounding constructions. We partnered with Ms. Maria Torres, President & COO at The Point CDC, and Majora Carter, who is one of our very well-known Hunts Point community activists. The tour was a complete success!” – Ms. Marlla Torres, Hyde’s Family-School Partnership Coordinator
